Cyber criminals can strike during off-hours, when business operations are down and response times are slower. Hackers aim to deploy their attacks outside of normal business hours, on weekends, and during holidays. It’s important that your organization’s cybersecurity works around-the-clock to protect your business from malicious attacks.

Managed Detection & Response

Managed detection and response (MDR) provides businesses with vulnerability and threat hunting capabilities and responds to risks as they are detected. A Managed Services Provider (MSP) can deliver solutions to track and uncover threats lurking in an organization’s environment. With MDR, your endpoints will be monitored 24/7, with full visibility into your network, threat intelligence, and rapid response times.

Backups & Disaster Recovery

Data backups are extremely important to protect your business’ secure information against cyberattacks, human error, hardware and software failure, power outages, and natural disasters. It’s crucial to take the right steps to prevent unauthorized access or accidental data loss.

In the case of an unexpected interruption, a disaster recovery plan will allow your organization to respond quickly and resume operations. Without a plan in place for disaster recovery, your business faces major financial loss and even failure. The longer the downtime is during and after an event, the higher the loss. With a disaster recovery and business continuity plan in place, your business can remain operational when faced with an unplanned event.

Software Patches & Updates

Cyber criminals can gain access to networks through outdated or unpatched software. It’s crucial to ensure your systems are up to date with the latest features and improvements by applying updates and patches as soon as they are available. Software updates and patches can reduce security vulnerabilities by blocking the open doors that hackers use to gain access to sensitive data.
